Drumline is a class open to all TJ students. In this class, students will have the opportunity to learn not only the battery instruments of a marching drumline, but also percussion instruments, such as the xylophone, timpani, cymbals, triangles, congos, bongos and drumset. This group has many opportunities to perform, so some additional practice after school helps us prepare. Students are strongly encouraged to attend after-school practices twice a week, if at all possible. We hope you’ll join us.
Our focus is on both skills and concepts – the rudimental skills of playing and the concepts involved in reading music. This group performs along with the pep band, concert bands and on its own. Depending upon the students’ interests, this group will march in parades and make public appearances.
